The name Your Place or Mine leaves no room for doubt that a one-night stand is involved somewhere in the equation. But this Netflix flick is not your average one-night stand and turns out to be the yin to the yang kind of romantic comedy. Masterfully crafted by Aline Brosh McKenna who has also helmed blockbuster projects such as The Devil Wears Prada, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, 27 Dresses, and Morning Glory, the writer and director was the go-to for anyone looking to make a timeless romantic comedy in her time.
And now Netflix has not only brought McKenna who is known for creating timeless rom-coms gold but also Ashton Kutcher and Reese Witherspoon for starring in it. The OTT Mughal went all out to give its streamers a magical romantic comedy movie that would go well with the present world. And while it promises to be every bit as cliché as the movies we love watching, Your Place or Mine will also entail realistic elements to it.
What is Your Place or Mine about?
Although the idea of finding a soulmate in a one-night stand pushes the idea of the movie being “realistic” out the window, it has other elements that retain it. For starters, the female lead albeit blonde is not dumb. Played by none other than the queen of rom coms AKA Rese Witherspoon, the female lead of this Netflix romantic comedy is named Debbie.

Furthermore, Debbie is a single parent who is striving to raise her kid as best as she can and while she is at it, she is also bit by bit forgetting her dream project.
That is until she finally gets a massive opportunity to live her dream in New York except for the fact that she has never left her kid alone. Cue for the entry of the once one-night stand and now best friend since twenty years Peter, played by Ashton Kutcher.
I’m really confused by the new Your Place or Mine rom com with Reese Witherspoon. Are we supposed to believe anyone would choose Ashton Kutcher over Jesse Williams? I know movies are pretend… but have you seen Jesse Williams?

The two of them decide to switch-a-roo their lives for a legitimate cause and suddenly tons of unattended past feelings start coming to light. However, fans find it unrealistic that Jesse Williams is a second lead in this flick. Netflix just dropped the trailer and every minute consists of the iconic 90s romantic comedy magic. The flick is all set to release on the 10th of February just around Valentine’s day, talk about impeccable timing.
